It was very hard to decide between Happy Holidays and Winter Wonderland!  I love love love hot chocolate and I was very curious to smell the candle scent of it, however I love the classic holiday scents of the theme gift set Happy Holidays.

The scented candles in the "Happy Holidays" themed Old Factory Candles gift set are definitely true to each scent.  It took my husband and children seconds to guess what each candle scent was suppose to be.  The scent also lasts throughout burning and even lingers after it's been blown out. 

Which scent is the best? My favorite candle scent out of the 3 is definitely Christmas Tree.  It definitely brings out the warm feeling of the holiday season.  My kids can't get enough of the Gingerbread scent, it definitely smells like a fun holiday treat.  My husband is a fan of the Candy Cane scent.  It reminds him of me and my little addiction to sweets!

There is an Old Factory Candle scent for every mood and every person.  These Old Factory Candles gift sets make a simply amazing gift this Holiday Season.

Downtown Summerlin Grand Opening

For me, the opening of Downtown Summerlin was very important.  Finally, a shopping center minutes from our new condo!!!  (This fact was actually one of the selling points in making our choice for our new home a few months ago.)  The structure and the ambience reminds me of a true west coast open-aired shopping center.  I get a little home sick, Ala Moana Shopping Center, on the island of Oahu was definitely my ideal open-aired mall growing up.  Shopping at Ala Moana, with the beautiful view of the beaches were amazing.  Downtown Summerlin has the serene views of Red Rock, a view that must be enjoyed especially at sunset at one of the many restaurants with outdoor seating.


Fortunately, I was lucky enough to work Downtown Summerlin's Grand Opening VIP party, #FASHIONMEETSTHEROCK  

I got an awesome view of all the Las Vegans who showed up to be a part of the opening nights light show and events. VIP or not, everyone is treated like a star at Downtown Summerlin.



This event was work for

Lucky for me, I actually knew one of the VIPs who got an invite to the party.  Here's a peek into the coveted swag bag which included: wine, beauty samples, a very cute mini Sephora make up bag, and gift certificates.

Wantable Box: A Beautiful New Thing


Wantable sent me this box for my review. This post contains affiliate links.


"When a woman says," I have nothing to wear!" what she really means is, "There's nothing here for who I'm supposed to be today."- Caitlin Moran

This statement was protectively wrapped around what was soon to be a few of my new favorite summer accessories.  A woman can be many things at one time, evolving and changing with time and especially with moments. 

A Wantable it truly possible to simply answer a few questions and then receive a box of accessories, makeup, and intimates that would match just you or the woman you feel like being today?

The answer is Yes. A Wantable Box is as unique as you! delivers on trend and in style accessories, intimates, and makeup.

The Wantable Box I received delivered accessories for any style of outfit or occassion, from dressy to casual.  It's like the box knew what I liked, importantly, what I wanted.  The ideas of what outfits I would wear my new accessories with filled my head.  As a bonus, on the inserted sheet, along with the description of each accessory a style tip is included!

My June Accessories Box included:

Milania Bracelet (value $28):  This bracelet was my ultimate favorite.  I love the gold tones.  This was a perfect fit with my date night dress!

Brogan Watch (value $29):  This featured a cork-like strap, which is definitely my style on causal days, when I want to look effortlessly cool while chasing my kids around the playground or a crowded Las Vegas buffet.

Elizabeth Earrings (value $16):  I love the colors!  These definitely can be dressed up or down.

Vegas, so many shows, so little time! I've been to a number of shows in Vegas, and Zarkana definitely delivers. The singing and the cirque artists were amazing.  My sweet date, who usually falls asleep after the first 10 minutes of anything surprisingly enjoyed Zarkana!

We were lucky enough to have amazing seats, actually comfy couches, near center stage.  Before the show started, there are clowns, who are part of the show, who interact with the audience.  It's a great treat that keeps the audience hyped up for the show.  I loved the vocalist and her beautiful costumes.  The opening act was my favorite.  There are these two English twins who are suspended from the ceilings and they do this incredible acrobatic act while gliding over the audience.  It's amazing.  Their act seems so effortless and perfect, definitely breath-taking.  My other favorite was a male solo dance performance.  It was a beautiful performance that definitely displayed his strength and grace.  Jokingly, I told my husband how impressive it was for the male solo dancer to do flips and remove his shirt at the same time! Lol

Overall, it was fantastic show! The End.


Love my bracelet? Lucky me! It was one of the picks sent in my  box! Personally picked for me based on my preferences.  What will pick for you?  




Caesars Palace


One night at Caesars Palace is never enough...the pools, the shops, the fancy rooms with pretty views...  

A sweet goodnight chocolate to start the night...

Nighttime view from our room at Caesars, it almost makes you want to spend a night on the strip.  However, the huge jacuzzi bathtub makes you want to stay in! 

Here's an old photo of our first visit to Serendipity Las Vegas, it's always fun to eat out on the patio, take a few photos, and watch the weirdos on the Las Vegas Strip!
